Phil is in the (club) house. Finally. It isn't often the sportswriters beat the defending Masters champion to Augusta National, but they did this week. Phil Mickelson, last year's champion, did not get to town until late Monday night. He had a good excuse, though. His arrival was delayed by his victory in the BellSouth Classic, a PGA Tour event outside Atlanta that was extended to Monday by weather delays, then extended four holes by a playoff, which Mickelson won by outlasting Rich Beem.

Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els skipped the BellSouth Classic to focus on the Masters. Not Phil Mickelson. Tuning up for his Masters defense, Mickelson shot a seven-under 65 on Sunday to move within one stroke of leader Scott McCarron with one round to play in the rain-delayed BellSouth Classic. McCarron, the 1997 and 2001 winner at the TPC at Sugarloaf, shot his second straight 69 for a six-under 138 total. Mickelson, the No.

If any Arkansas football players are going to prison, they'll have to get there on their own. Razorback Coach Houston Nutt recently devised a plan for an educational--and cautionary--visit to the Grimes Unit of the Arkansas State Prison for a little cultural exchange. "We were going to have Raymond House, Jermaine Brooks, Josh Melton [and] Mark Bokermann talk to about 25 of their guys, and then we were going to have about seven lifers talk to our guys," Nutt said.

The Masters cut of eight-over-par 152 was the highest since 1982. Notables who will not play the weekend include Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Sergio Garcia. Els' exit ends his streak of consecutive PGA tour event cuts made at 46. Els, who ended up at 10 over after rounds of 78-76, also ended a streak of 27 cuts made in majors. The last cut he missed was the 1999 PGA Championship. Fred Couples made the cut on the number, which allowed him to tie Gary Player's Masters record of 23 straight.

Bob May's back screams at him from time to time when he leans over to pick up a ball. Those spasms might knock him out for weeks, or even months. It rarely happens anymore, and he's thrilled finally to be healthy and on the comeback trail after years of injury issues. Practically playing in his Las Vegas backyard on a picture-perfect day in the desert, May shot a nine-under-par 63 at TPC Summerlin on Thursday to top the leaderboard in the Frys.com Open.

Four days after closing with a 67 for his best finish in a major, Adam Scott made nine birdies over his last 12 holes Thursday for a seven-under-par 63, giving him a two-shot lead over Jason Gore and leaving him four shots ahead of Tiger Woods in the Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. Scott made his charge too late Sunday at Medinah to have any shot in the PGA Championship, where he tied for third. "That was my hope coming into this week, to keep playing like I did last week," Scott said.
